One Step Closer

Can you believe it's September already? I can't. This year is flying by. Next week starts the beginning of fall quarter at the college I work for. After a nice quiet summer, I am sooo not ready for the rush of students and...ugh...helicopter parents! But then again I never am.

On Monday I turned in my second round of revisions for The Paris Secret. I think there will probably be another round or two of revisions before we get to the copy edits. Anyone who thinks ebooks aren't well edited needs to think again, at least when it come to Carina Press. I've never worked so hard or learned so much! After four published novels, I'm still learning and growing as an author. And I'm sure there will be even more lessons to come.

I am happy to report that I also got an email from Carina's art department on Monday. They are ready to start working on the cover! They sent me an Art Fact Sheet asking for detailed feedback on everything from the mood and setting of the book to physical descriptions of my main characters. And boy did I give them detailed feedback! This is the first time I've ever filled out an Art Fact Sheet. They even asked me to send along cover images and pictures that captured the mood of the book. I already had a lot of potential cover images picked out from when I had contemplated self-publishing The Paris Secret. But I also searched for covers on Amazon and Barnes and Noble that illustrated the type of cover I envisioned for The Paris Secret. I've been very impressed with Carina's covers so far. I can't wait to see what they come up with for my book!

And just in case you're wondering what images I sent them, the links are below! Enjoy! And have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!
